Navicular syndrome

There are different expert opinions to the cause of the navicular syndrome. In essence, overstraining of the tendons and ligaments and too much pressure on the navicular bone and the deep flexor tendon are mentioned again and again. Remarkably, most cases (approx. 80%) of the navicular syndrome develop on the handed foreleg.

Observing a horse walking on a circle it becomes clear how this excessive strain comes to being: On its not handed rein, the horse, due to the here acting centrifugal force, does not put its outside (handed) fore leg straight to the front but touches the ground with the quarter and lands with the full force of the body on this hoof. So the body weight is not spread equally over the whole surface of the hoof but is caught only by the outer part. The consequence is a one-sided overstraining of all the structures in the front leg.

So it is important to straighten a horse in order to reduce excessive strain and harmful movement patterns as far as possible and to direct them into controllable tracks. Especially in the case of pathological findings, the crookedness of the horse needs to be corrected.

Even if the disease cannot be cured this way, the further development can be positively influenced and progression of the disease can be prevented.

In the end this means more quality of life for the horse!
